Should perception of emotions be classified according to threat detection rather than emotional valence? An updated meta-analysis for a whole-brain atlas of emotional faces processing
CONCLUSION: Processing of emotional faces appeared to be oriented toward identifying threats on faces, from highest (i.e., angry or fearful faces) to lowest level (i.e., happy or sad faces), with a more complex lateralization pattern than previously theorized. Emotional faces may be processed in latent grouping but organized by threat content rather than emotional valence.PMID:37857413 | DOI:10.1503/jpn.230065 (Source: Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience)

Correlation of the methylomic signature of smoking during pregnancy with clinical traits in ADHD
CONCLUSION: This study provides evidence for the association between the level of methylation at specific loci and quantitative dimensions highly relevant for ADHD as well as birth weight, a measure that has already been associated with increased risk for ADHD. Our results provide further support to public health educational initiatives to stop maternal smoking during pregnancy.PMID:37857414 | DOI:10.1503/jpn.230062 (Source: Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience)

Heritability of amygdala reactivity to angry faces and its replicable association with the schizophrenia risk locus of < em > miR-137 < /em >
CONCLUSION: Our data-driven approach shows preliminary evidence that amygdala activity, as evaluated with our task, is heritable. Our genetic associations preliminarily suggest a role for miR-137 in brain activity during explicit processing of facial emotions among healthy participants and patients with schizophrenia, pointing to the amygdala as a brain region whose activity is related to miR-137.PMID:37751917 | PMC:PMC10521919 | DOI:10.1503/jpn.230013 (Source: Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience)
